How The Planet Works—Plate Tectonics & The Feasibility Of A Hollow Earth
Voyager Lecture Series With Rick Miller
In 1998, Jan Lamprecht published Hollow Planets. A Study of Possible Hollow Worlds. In it he states “Let me show you how my Hollow Planet seismic model can explain the Earth’s seismology better than the existing solid Earth seismic model – and yet not one person at any university has shown the slightest interest in this.”
Rick Miller will present the constant movement of our Earth’s crust and discuss his views on the concept of a hollow planet.
Rick Miller is a semi-retired professor of geological sciences (San Diego State University) with primary interests in microscopic fossils and the history of our planet Earth. He moved to St. George in 2001 because of the beauty and geological setting. He has maintained a strong interest in teaching (and was at DSU as an adjunct in 2010-2015) and volunteer lecturing on topics within the geological sciences for the Institute for Continued Learning (2004-present) and the Community Education Program (starting this spring). He also enjoy vigorous exercise, writing, bowling, old Corvettes, Chevy trucks, and caring for animals of all types.
This lecture will begin at 7:30pm on October 14th. An informal gathering begins at 6:30pm in the Lorberbaum-Stahl Studio. Tickets are $15, including refreshments.
